RITUAL 

President: 

Children of the Confederacy, this day we are gathered together in the sight of 
God, to strengthen the bonds that unite us in a common cause; to renew the vows 
of loyalty to our sacred principles; to do homage unto the memory of our gallant 
Confederate Soldiers, and to perpetuate the fame of their noble deeds, unto the third 
and fourth generations. To this end we invoke the aid of our Heavenly Father. 
Chaplain: 

"Hear my prayer, O God; attend unto my prayer. For Thou, Lord, art good 
and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto them that call upon Thee." 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, we adore Thy love and Providence, in the 
history of our country, and especially we thank Thee for our Confederate history. 
We thank Thee for its pure record of virtue, valor, and sacrifices; and for the 
inspiring reflection that, despite its bitter disappointments and sorrow, it proclaims 
for us, to all the world, that we came through its years of trial and struggle with 
our battered shields pure, our character as a patriotic and courageous people 
untarnished, and nothing to regret .in our defense of the rights and the honor of our 
Southland. 

Give us grace, our Heavenly Father, faithfully to accent Thy will concerning us, 
and make us all to glorify Thee in a sincere obedience to Thy holy commandments, 
through the merits and mediation of Thy Son, our only Savior, Jesus Christ. 

Let us pray together the Lord's Prayer. (Chaplain leading*) 

"Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy kingdom come. 
Thy will be done on earfh, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and 
forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us 
not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the 
power, and the glory, forever. Amen." 
President: 

And now, by the authority in me vested as President of the Children of the 
Confederacy, I do hereby declare this meeting open and ready for business. 

CREED 

Because we desire to perpetuate, in love and honor, the heroic deeds of those 
who enlisted in the Confederate Army, and upheld its flag through four years of war, 
we, the children of the South, have united in an Organization called the "Children 
of the Confederacy," in which our strength, enthusiasm, and love of justice can exert 
its influence. 

We, therefore, pledge ourselves to preserve pure ideals; to honor our Veterans; 
to study and teach the truths of History (one of the most important of which is, that 
the War Between the States was not a REBELLION, nor was its underlying cause to 
sustain slavery) , and always to act in a manner that will reflect honor upon our noble 
and patriotic ancestors.
